Anyone else remember that Don Knotts movie The Incredible Mr. Limpet?

(Spoiler: Warner Brothers had the idea for a movie in which a human bangs a fish long before Benicio Del Toro.)

“human-like lips on this fish are disconcerting”


#4

Was coming to say the same thing…


#5

Please cross breed with this fish.


#6

What about genitalia ?

asking for a friend.


#7

I guess that’s what the “animal testing” on lipstick brands is referring to.


#8

Mr. Limpet was my first thought as well

Probably inadvertent artificial selection. You catch one of those guys, go AAAHhh, and throw it back in.


#11

This is amazing. Reminds me of the (in)famous Seaman game


#12

I think Lucille Ball was reincarnated as a fish.


#13

Reminiscent of:

Which then led me to the wonderful:

“ooohhhh fishy, fishy, fishy fish!”


#14

I threw up a little


#15

I’ve read that various plastics and drugs being flushed aquifers had hormonal affects on fish, but, I mean, really?

If I ever see some guy asking for cichlid at the fish market, I will move slowly away.


#17

It’s saying, the fish-like lips on that human are disconcerting.


#18

Since fish preceded humans evolutionarily, perhaps we should say that humans have fish lips.


#19

You think that’s weird, look at this mofo’s teeth.

someone please tell splitsider that the word is “antepenultimate”
